Support strong regulations
 

I heartily support making the current regulations on abortion centers permanent and not diluting the current strong temporary standards.   These regulations are common sense and reasonable.   Implementation of even the temporary standards have uncovered (and hopefully corrected) numerous instances of infractions to which women should not be exposed (dirty instruments and facilities, etc.).   These instances have made it clear that these facilities do not self-regulate and I urge the Board to make strong regulations permanent.
